Sweet Saturday – Strawberry almond and oat muffins

As my migraines have been so much worse lately we have decided to try cutting out all artificial additives. So no colourings, preservatives, artificial sweeteners etc. This is meant to help with migraines, and also might help with my sons behavioral issues so it’s win win.

Here is a recipe I came up with today to use up some of the strawberries we got cheap at the markets.


1 1/4 cup of cooked strawberries. (quarter approx 2 punnets of strawberries simmer in saucepan with 1/2 cup of water for 25 mins)

1 1/4 cup of applesauce

3/4 cup of chopped natural almonds

2 cups of wholemeal flour

1 cup of plain flour

1 cup of whole oats

4 tsp baking powder

2 tsp bicarb soda

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Pre heat oven to 150 degrees Celsius fan forced (130 Celsius non fan forced) ((300 Fahrenheit))

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. If the mix is too dry you can add more applesauce, strawberry sauce or a little milk (rice or soy is fine) if needed.

Spoon into muffin tins and bake. To be honest I forgot to check the time when I put them in, but I would check them after 20 mins and go from there. You can tell if they are ready by poking them with a skewer.


They are very yummy, although they are pretty dense for someone who is used to eating store bought sugary muffins.
